John Michael Muccino is a composer, arranger, and singer-songwriter. 


He currently runs and operates Muccino Works, a music production company providing unique scores and recordings for various visual media. His clients range from both individual filmmakers and production companies to visual artists and commercial businesses. He also creates custom orchestral and chamber arrangements for bands and recording artists and is sought after as a musical consultant, valued for the speed and quality of his session work as a keyboardist. On May 17th, 2019 he self-released his debut full-length record Libelli, Etc.

He first entered the music industry in 2012 as the lead guitarist of New Jersey-based band River City Extension. The group toured heavily for years, building up a fervent national following and playing major music festivals such as Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, SXSW, and Harvest (AU). Their music garnered critical acclaim from NPR, Paste, Rolling Stone, and Spin, among others. During John's tenure with RCE he also contributed string arrangements, lead guitar work, and songwriting for what would end up being the band's final full length album, Deliverance (2015). Since River City Extension's dissolving in 2015 John has shifted his focus from performing to composing and arranging, offering several unique musical services that you will find listed below in addition to his work as a songwriter.

John lives in Stamford, NY. He likes chess, cigars, and Seinfeld.

And old song by an old friend that finally ended up on one of his records. I was honored to be asked to contribute to this beautiful work.


Local-national-global NJ legends Brick + Mortar were looking for a little something extra on their new single. "Great Escape" is about to be the jam of the summer.



The Great Train Robbery (1903-2014) was my first attempt at scoring for any kind of visual media. It falls somewhere between a film score and a concert piece for solo piano.
